Using ecological mapping of black ash (Fraxinus nigra Marsh.) riparian settlements around lake Duparquet (Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Québec) and dendrochronological study in the aim to characterize the past-flood dynamics for the understanding of actual stand structure to anticipate the impacts of future changes in the hydrological regime on the specie distribution.
